Kenyan Gospel singer and Eastlands Most Beloved (EMB) Records boss Kevin Bahati has addressed claims that he might be signed to the WCB Wasafi label.
The singer who spoke on Milele Breakfast made it clear that he is strictly a gospel singer, after the show’s host Alex Mwakideu asked if his frequent trips to Tanzania and his closeness to Diamond Platnumz meant anything.
Bahati went on to say that he learns a lot to do with music and record label management from Diamond Platnumz who runs one of the most successful record labels in Africa.
He also stated that he has a business relationship with the Wasafi family and some of the things he has learnt from them are evident in the changes he has made to his music, over time.
“Mimi kuenda Wasafi of course is for the business relationship and you know with no doubt, Wasafi is one of the most successful record labels in Africa na kuwa rafiki na mtu kama Diamond you learn a lot and nikitoka hapa niende Tanzania, I just go chill and I listen. Pengine ananiambia hii ndio mistake alimake, usifanye hivi, fanya hivi ananiadvice kuhusu tomorrow, about the music industry, about running a record label and that’s why I made so many changes,” he said.
The father of three added that he listens a lot to people who came before him in the music industry and Diamond is one of the people he seeks advice from.
Bahati has lately been making trips to Tanzania and has worked with a number of Tanzanian artistes who include Rayvanny and Mbosso both from WCB. He has also worked with Aslay but the two seem to have fallen out, after a disagreement.
He is also one of the top artistes from Kenya who get invited to events organized by the WCB team, the most recent one being an invite to attend Tanasha Donna and Mama Dangote’s birthday party.
